Angola Telecom to Increase Mobile Coverage With Huawei

by: Jessica Ferreira

Angola Telecom and Huawei have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which will enable the two companies to lay the foundations for increasing mobile coverage in Angola.

Through the investment in telecommunications infrastructures, the operators will be able to extend their coverage to multiple users, particularly in places that are difficult to access, and achieve the mobile coverage targets set out in Angola’s National Development Program (PDN) 2023 – 2027.

The memorandum was signed during the official visit of Angola’s Minister of Telecommunications, Information Technology and Social Communication, Mário Augusto da Silva Oliveira, to China, with the purpose of strengthening partnerships with China in order to improve communications services in Angola.

The goal of the visit was to get to know Huawei’s production line for equipment and devices, in light of the projects underway in Angola for digital acceleration, namely the National Broadband Network Project.

The project will improve Internet access, calls, messages and videos and audiovisual programs with less latency.

Meanwhile, the National Cloud project will allow all ministerial departments and public administration services, private companies and others in the sector to be interconnected.
